Location: Grattan Raceway, Belding MI
Event Dates: 07/28/17 - 07/30/17
Description: Mark your calendars because the Maumee Valley Region PCA is hosting another 3 day Drivers Education at the famous and REPAVED Grattan Raceway! We like to keep our DE's small so there is more open track time, so be sure to sign up quick! Grattan is a fun and challenging track with a beautiful woods surrounding. The picturesque road course is two miles long with several unique and challenging corners. It is considered to be one of the finest courses in America. Some of its features include a 3,200 foot straightaway, a 160 degree hairpin turn and a downhill reverse camber turn. If you can master Grattan, you can drive anywhere.
Saturday and Sunday will be an Instructed DE open to drivers of ALL skill levels. Beginner and Novice drivers will be provided an instructor to help learn the track, your car, and driving skills.
Friday will be a lapping day for Instructors and Advanced drivers to put in as many laps as your tires can handle. Again, this lapping day is only for advanced, solo drivers.
NOTE: If you are not sure you meet this criteria, please contact the MVR CDI Craig Zenil before you register.
There will be a Saturday night dinner with activities where you can meet other car enthusiasts and talk about your time on the track.
For the first time ever, we will be having LADIES ONLY run group on Friday. This is for novice ladies to get a taste of what a DE is. This will include classroom time and a few sessions on the track with an instructor.
Grattan offers 10 single car garages with electricity. Also, you get the space in front of the garage on the concrete to park your truck and trailer if needed. Garages are now handled by Sam at Grattan Raceway. Sam can be reached at (616)691-7221.
Be sure to tell your friends, the event registration will be kept small so there is plenty of open track time to learn and enjoy your car!...so sign up quick.
***You are not "confimed" for the event until your registration is fully paid via clubreg. "Confirmed" means that your run group and car number are set. We are doing this to make registration and tech at the track easier for you and other drivers. Thank you for your understanding.***
NOTE --- CAR NUMBERS --- you will be responsible for your own car number stickers. You must at least have one (or both) of the two options below:
1) Have your number in the top-middle of your windshield. Numbers should be at least 6 inches tall.
2) Have your numbers on BOTH sides of your car. Numbers should be at least 8 inches tall.
Don't forget that Grattan charges a one time gate fee of $10
